    CamilleThere are certain foods I’m extremely picky about. Eggs happen to be one of those items.

    The only way I’ve ever liked my eggs is boiled, or so I thought. One fateful morning I forgot my breakfast and went over to our internal GMM cooler to see if there were any meals I could swipe. Low and behold, there was only one breakfast meal left – the Broccoli & Cauliflower Frittata. My first thought? “I’ll pass”, but I was famished.

    Knowing how delicious our meals are, and having experienced their ability to make me a believer in new foods I’d turned my nose at before, I decided to take a chance and heat it up. What’s the worst that could happen? Well, let me tell you. That Friday morning changed my life (not really, but you get the picture). The frittata was absolutely delicious! FritattaIt was so good, I decided to get into the kitchen and try my hand at making my own frittata. Turns out, I love frittatas! Who knew? I went on to try out some of our other frittatas and loved all of them.

    If you’re a picky eater, you might think Good Measure Meals wouldn’t work for you. You could be wrong. The thought that goes into the recipes and our extensive menu development process produces excellent results that will adjust your preferences. We just launched our Spring/Summer menu and I can’t wait to find the next new “life-changing” item! My suggestion is to try it out. There’s no contract, or long-term commitment. What’s the worst that could happen?

    Your new favorite food could be waiting for you…

    Let’s face it. Most of us are creatures of habit.

    I plead the fifth.

    I happen to be one of those people who doesn’t mind eating the same lunch five days in a row. When you find healthy recipes that are affordable to make and don’t take much time, it’s easy to repeat!

    But working at Good Measure Meals has allowed me the opportunity to try different types of food while simultaneously eliminating that “intimidating factor” attached to some health-promoting foods.

    One of those amazing discoveries is Farro, a hearty ancient grain with a nutty flavor.

    After I tried Farro on GMM’s menu, I decided I wanted to try and cook it on my own. I bought some of my favorite chicken stock (I always purchase reduced sodium), a bundle of kale, fresh garlic, & a huge onion.

    After cooking the Farro in the chicken stock and then sautéing the kale, onion, and garlic separately (using Extra Virgin Olive Oil), I thought “why not combine these together?” I’m glad I did! It was delicious, and it has even become one of my meals of habit lately, since it’s easy and satisfying.

    GMM isn’t only a great tool for weight-loss or convenience, but also a great way to inspire people to put on that apron and try something new!
